Are gun confiscations next on the NDP's agenda?

Brian LilleyArchive

I further explore one of the policies in the NDP's 2015 Policy Book related to firearms.

The policy aimed at stopping illegal gun smuggling, proposes enabling municipalities, provinces and territories to implement a ban on handguns.

But handguns are already difficult to get in Canada so why the need for this policy?

As I discussed with gun control scholar John R. Lott, Jr. yesterday, progressives across North America haven't had much success making changes at the federal level, so is this an attempt to shift responsibility to local levels with gun confiscations next on the agenda?

Maybe we could get to talking policy if the media wasn't so busy talking Duffy.

These idle people who flap about gun control do NOT know the real law.I was in court because two bad tenants both attacked me while I was working and shot at me! I reported many times and nothing was done for this tax payer.What did happen after a lie that I did not know about until 27 months later representing myself after I answered a corrupt opp who asked me if I had a firearm with me while I was working two months at late night in the bush along a waterway doing a large drain etc.After saying yes these tenants made sure I was charged because of their LIES.During my defense I presented my crown patent or letter patent signed by KING GEORGE 4th dated 1825-1830 which state all promises are forever and stays with all assigns which my wife and myself are.On my letter patent it states all armanent and tools to develop and run my property.The judge ruled my letter patent is a true & legal copy and my patent calls anyone that interferes an ursurper and the real Crown can and will charge an ursurper with TREASON and I will be awarded damages.I would think these individuals that flap should be aware they are dealing against the founding King George 4th and COMMON LAW. Ken Hughes Ontario Landowners are worth looking up.There are close to 20000 members and many have their Letter Patent!

Good Morning.
I can’t figure out why the ’Nother Dum Politician (NDP) and the Liebrals are worrying about firearms when there are more important things to worry about like the national debt that is increasing at $1,000 per second.

When the Lie-berals brought in the Long Gun registry the non compliance was so huge that no one really knows how many guns are in Canada. I alone know of two gun collectors that had over 50 guns each, and not a single one was ever registered. That’s over 100 guns owned by law abiding (except for defying the registry) people that never were registered, that I knew about, how many did I not know about?. I know these people as friends and can honestly say that these guys have never broken the law with or without guns (except for not registering).
So the bearded dipper can bring about all the laws he wants, but there will always be good people who will stand up to bad laws.
Remember the saying, ‘they will pry my gun out of my cold dead fingers’.

So…the “Beard of Ignorance”s plan to combat ILLEGAL firearms possession and use…is…to ban LEGAL firearms possession and use. Typical. He speaks forcefully and passionately about things he knows absolutely nothing about. He’s proved this in Parliament, time and time and time again. Even when he knows what he’s saying is wrong, he keeps saying it, over and over, to whoever will listen. He’s proved himself, publicly, to be morally bankrupt, a teller of mistruths, and a media attention leech. I don’t honestly believe he’s stupid enough to believe his own propaganda…but then again, true socialists never do.

God forbid he gets elected, or God help our country.

Sadly Sylvie, Canadians are already deemed ‘criminals’ for possessing firearms legally, let alone actually having to use one to foil a criminal act against them or their property. The laws of ‘self-defense’ are much more narrow here in Canada vs. the US so using any type of firearm to ‘defend oneself’ is already a dicey issue, let alone any new legislation meant to further curtail a citizen’s right to lawfully, and responsibly, own a firearm.
commented 2015-08-17 02:58:56 -0400
An NDP Minority Gov, a Conservative Minority Gov….a disaster for the law abiding. The augmentation of tyranny! A police State! If handguns were confiscated…. Crime will increase. Criminals will prey on the innocents without fear of resistance. In order to exercise the Right to Security…. Citizens who were once law abiding may be pushed to become “criminals”??
God help all the law abiding people from tyrants such as Mulcair, Trudeau or Wynne…… And not just on this issue!
I pray that you are right Mr Elder

I can’t state this enough – Banning hand guns is ultra vires (not within) municipal or provincial authority.
any attempt would be met with injunctions and mass lawsuits. What I hear Mulcair saying is he would like to ban ALL guns but he lacks the constitutional justification, political guts or resources to do it so he makes whimsical suppositions that "HE will “ALLOW” the cities to do it , knowing full well the SCC has already settled the issue- the man is legally and constitutionally confused – but he knows one thing – stirring up this blame the target shooter/hunter for inner city crime then legally oppress them placebo BS will be met with immediate and overwhelming resistance and could be a career/government ender if pursued.

Firearms owners tired of this oppression had a lot to do with defeating and keeping the LPC in the opposition benches – heed this lesson mad Tom, put your fringers on a leash and keep them away from policy – or you will never form or stay in government.
commented 2015-08-16 12:19:13 -0400
I guess Mulcair does not understand or realize that if he does this , it will create a vast underground black market for handguns here in Canada. Wendy Cukier with her sexist witch hunting inquisitors at the Coalition for gun control do not want any legally owned handguns here because sometimes they get stolen and used in crimes including “domestic abuse”. Of course cars and trucks are used all the time to commit crimes and domestic abuse but that doesn`t count because she likely drives and owns a car. She cannot equate the lawful and safe use of handguns to the lawful and safe use of an automobile.
God forbid if Mulcair and the NDP come to power because they will start a massive witch hunt purge and those who still want handguns will buy them on the black market. It is hard to believe that after all we have been through in the worlds history, people like Mulcair think that they are the ones in power, not the citizens. We all must work harder than ever to ensure this dictators defeat.

Did you know that if you have an old double barrelled shot gun laying around in the attic— all you have to do is saw of the barrels and it will be a bidding war on the street. Expect no less than a G.
Saw off a single and you will double or triple its’ value. Gun Control is ONLY for people that obey the LAW.

After taking off my uniform almost 40 years ago and hanging it up in the back of my closet , I have come to realize that I never really took it off. I take a lot of pride knowing that the rest of my brothers and sister vets will never roll over to tyranny in this country that so many of us still uphold the oaths that we took to protect our land and the people who live here.

In answer to the title question.

One huge advantage the left have over conservatives is a very homogeneous dogma, almost like talking points from a play book, and they’re all on board with it – besides the advantage of a complete lock on the MSM editorial policy. As delusional and misguides as progressives are, they are consistent in their doctrine and woe betide the apostate…and so, good luck trying to debate them on issues that aren’t safe liberal topics.
Conservatives on the other hand are a diverse lot, their independent thinking renders them immune to the herd instinct exhibited consistently by the liberal left and therefore extremely difficult to organize to fight back effectively against the progressive juggernaut rolling over us. Besides, unlike the socialists, the conservatives are generally all out working hard every day feeding their families and creating wealth and don’t really have time or energy for shit-disturbing for a cause(s) tailor made for the mentally disordered.
I’m on board with the conservative values CHARLES MOULTON listed. Even though I’m voting CPC again – as the lessor of evils. The CPC is neither a true fiscal or social conservative party – unlike, say, the Christian Heritage Party, which is, read their policy platforms…
The problem, is all the delusional low-information-voter-useful-idiot-dupes that populate this country, that allow themselves to be led around by their gonads – or whatever – by a pack of slavering hyenas – The Chattering Classes.
The problem is HOW to get through or around or past the well-meaning, misinformed masses that are indoctrinated! What will it take?
I could tell Mulchair to his face – and all his armed body-guards – ‘try and take my guns you stinkin’ Commie, go ahead and try’ – as rewarding as that would be, it would only invite unwanted attention from the authorities and would have no impact on a dirty, stinkin’ commie anyway…
It will come to a point where it will be too late to act…think of what may have been prevented if you were around in the 30’s, in Germany, knew what was going to go down and you had a Mauser 98 with some good glass, or something…

You know the enn-dee-pee is lying when muh-clair’s lips move.

It’s just a question of how stupid Canadian voters really are. By the looks of it, the MSM is pushing the “be a stupid Canadian voter” agenda – lot’s of socialist hate spew.

Remember the liberal pigs advertised that tanks that were going to roll through Canadian cities under Harper??? Good jawb paul reprobate martin – rot in h*ll.

Charles, like many others I wish we could re-establish the old values for my kids sake. We don’t inherit the earth from our parents, we borrow it from our children
commented 2015-08-15 16:39:48 -0400
Peter I thank you for that…

But even with other people reading these posts, the trolls that you mentioned do not believe in the things that were stated… I wish I was a smarter man, so I could come up with a way to help the Rebel Media group go national…
commented 2015-08-15 16:32:58 -0400
Charles Moulton said, “They would do almost anything in their power to stop Rebel going national…”

Yea, just like several groups tried to do just before Sun News started up.

We have people that support the Rebel very much.

I just wanted to repost your comments here because they all are very accurate to what the majority of people on this site believe (except the 4 or 5 trolls we have here). Worth repeating. Hope you do not mind.

1. We stand ‘almost’ against the UN at there leftist view, we can’t stand the way the MSM is in this country and the US are run…

2. We believe in the rights for everyone and everyone is allowed to have a saying…

3. We believe that Israel has the right to defend it’s self…

4. We believe that women are equal and should have the same pay for doing the same job…

5. We believe if you are not qualified for the job you shouldn’t be hired, don’t throw the race card or sex card in because it isn’t true…

6. We strongly believe in protecting our country from people that want to do harm…

7. We believe that families should always come first because with out them the world crumbles…

8. We believe in keeping the books clean in government and not running deficits…
commented 2015-08-15 16:23:36 -0400
Peter I agree. But even you can see, this can’t happen… The MSM would be to afaid of the Rebel Media group… They would do almost anything in their power to stop Rebel going national… They have no problem right now, because it is still a web based news / pod cast… If the Rebel was to go national on TV, the push back would be heard around the world… We have people that support the Rebel very much. We stand ‘almost’ against the UN at there leftist view, we can’t stand the way the MSM is in this country and the US are run… We believe in the rights for everyone and everyone is allowed to have a saying… We believe that Israel has the right to defend it’s self… We believe that women are equal and should have the same pay for doing the same job… We believe if you are not qualified for the job you shouldn’t be hired, don’t throw the race card or sex card in because it isn’t true… We strongly believe in protecting our country from people that want to do harm… We believe that families should always come first because with out them the world crumbles… We believe in keeping the books clean in government and not running deficits… The hard leftists don’t believe in any of the things I just stated… They say they are free but they really not… The true leftist wants the family to be broke up, they don’t want to fight to protect their way of life, they believe in terrorism, look how they treated the last one to be fingered… A true leftist believes that Canadian French are superior to everyone else. A true leftist wants the governments to run high deficits (look at Ontario, Manitoba and now Alberta) Ontario is the worst but they voted them in… The leftist say they are for equality but look how they keep making shit up so the sexes fight with each other… Look at the two leaders of the left. and how they think about protecting our borders, they both think we should follow the UN (now that is very scary)…

Man I could keep going on and on but I won’t…

Kelvin I completely agree with your comment.
commented 2015-08-15 16:17:07 -0400
Charles and Peter, there is one way all of this could get out to at least some of the masses and that’s through social media. I am far from an expert on social media and not even close to being very knowledgeable about it, but I do post on Facebook all that I can from the Rebel, and I’m sure if enough people did that on all the other social media networks, the masses would start to get the information.
commented 2015-08-15 14:45:55 -0400
Charles said, "But I guess it will never be… "

Not unless theRebel gets a platform that will reach as many people as the main stream media, and as many viewers, because we certainly cannot expect honesty from the MSM.
commented 2015-08-15 14:36:02 -0400
Oh how I wish this would get out to all the masses, so they could start waking up…
But I guess it will never be…
So I will get all my friends and I to hide our larger weapons again…
Once the stand or movement or relovlution begins, and it will in my life time…
We that still have the weapons, will be thanked by the masses for protecting their freedoms…
The sheep that follow all these leaders are really starting to scare me…
I look at my kids, and when I’m looking at them, all I can think about is all the freedoms that have already been taken for them…
Just think about all the freedoms that have been taken away from the younger generation already…
Just think back even to the 80’s and 90’s and remember all the freedoms and rights we had…

Don’t believe anything NDP say. Didn’t Notley campaign on no new taxes and support corporatations? What’s the first thing she did? Raise corporate taxes and middle class incomes destroying industry.
commented 2015-08-15 14:04:44 -0400
I guess No-Care wants to ban guns because if he wins we will probably have our first assassinated prime minister and he knows it. Kelvin, they took the ammo in preparation for the revolution that is coming
commented 2015-08-15 13:36:43 -0400
I didn’t register my hunting rifles last time and I will not register, hand them over, have them seized by RCMP thugs or any other gestapo type agency. I suggest that all gun owners and hunters stock up on ammunition when ever possible because guns are useless without bullets. The stolen ammunition from the High River gun grab was never returned to the rightful owners which poses another question why take the ammo?
commented 2015-08-15 12:36:56 -0400
These are the serious consequences of electing an unknown candidate especially when these candidates have people working with their party who have worked with and belong to Obama’s Gun grabbing Democrat party in Jeremy Bird working with Mulcair’s NDP and Geral Butts working with Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party!

It is an affront to Democracy, Freedom and Liberty to have to be worried about having Rights and Priveleges’ taken away from law abiding citizens’ by Canadian Politicians who dare to put honest everyday hard working citizens at the same trust level as criminals – who would never register a gun even if they could!
What will happen in this scenario is very simple, “All the criminals will have availability to hand guns, while all the honest Canadian citizens’ do not!”

The Socialist Media will never pursue the the Leftist Opposition Parties on their regressive “progressive” policies! Can’t let the truth get out to the voting public!
